Form & Function

Before we could develop the structural design or material properties of the new house, we needed to fully develop the clients original drawings into an approved design which would  fully realize the clients  requirements in line with the brief. Below are the elevations taken from the initial design drawings.

 The design is similar in style to the existing property, essentially a white rendered dormer house with glazing to closely match the style of the original glazed units. It is clear from the drawing that the client had already intended on installing ‘P.V’ panels on the roof of the south facing elevation. ‘P.V’ panels should always be installed on a south facing roof if possible to ensure maximum solar exposure during daylight hours.
